I have the above drive for 3 months now and didn't use it much because its only for backups. Today I copied data from one partition to another on this drive, and S.M.A.R.T-Values changed like crazy:
HD-Tune has about 6 seconds refresh-rate for SMART, and
every 6 seconds: * Seek Error Rate increased +230
every 6 seconds: * Raw Read Error Rate increased +300.000 (after 250.000.000 switching back to 0)
Hardware ECC Recovered has always the same value as Raw Read Error Rate
What does that mean?
I'm really concerned after a SMART-Tool showed "health-status: bad" when i bought the drive.
btw. its also affected by the firmware-issue...
The disk passed all SeaTools-Tests

Sorry for posting without much a clue of the topic.
It was such a shock for me to see the "error rates" climb so dramatically, so i had to ask whether i have to worry about my data and didnt have the nerves to find it out by myself.
Thanks a lot for sharing your knowledge
